How to use the GL graphics library?

Post by Jorge Pull » Thu, 05 Mar 1992 23:03:58


I'm trying to use the GL graphics library in our IBMS RS6000 AIX 3.1.5 3005.

I downloaded from infoexplorer a piece of code  named doublebuff.c that
presumably demonstrates some animated graphics. The problem is I do not
know how to compile it! When I do cc -o doublebuff doublebuff.c -lX11 I get:

0706-317 ERROR: Unresolved or undefined symbols detected:
                 Symbols in error (followed by references) are
                 dumped to the load map.
. etc...

Evidently I am missing some library in the cc line. The trouble is I cannot
find any library which contains the undefined subroutines that appear above.
So, where do I find the GL library?

Please reply by email I can summarize if there is interest.
I apologize if this post appears twice, we have had some posting problems

Thanks in advance.

try adding -lgl to the cc line.  That'll include the glib

1. Anyone using Xi Graphics X server w/GL support?

If so, I would like your opinions and also would like to open a simple
2D openGL client on your display to make sure it works.  Note: I am
referring to software based GL emulation, not the newest hardware
accelerated options.

Thanks for any help,
